  1. Connected car finance - Highly recommended - speak to Laura Jones / Luke McCarthy
  2. Get it serviced, MOT'd , say it in the adverts and most of all, its ready to drive away immediately when a buyer turns up for it! none of come back in a few days while we put it through ... ! Almost every single car of mine is ready to go today!
  3. Sad to read this! Not sure what has happened but looked a great business and as you say @twerp seemed to move a lot of stock quickly and had a massive following.
  4. Good Value dealer websites speak to Dealer5 Adrian / Dave , Think they start from around £600 per year.
  5. Hi Tom Welcome and good on you to make that move! As already said but defo "Video's sell cars' been saying that for many years - IMO Don't do 'silent movies' or 'Musicals' needs voice over with features of cars etc etc, I promise you you'll see instant results from videos. Pictures I've quickly looked at the BMW 3 Series in white, main image looks good but then the back ground as you move around spoils the effect imo, move the car round so no clutter in the back ground. Good luck! Umesh
  6. No Appointments, No Viewings, No Road test, as it says " click and collect - or - click and deliver", the whole transaction must have taken place remotely , so paid for in full and they simply collect!Customers not allowed in the premises. That's the rules, but there are many trying to 'work' their way round it.
  7. Another great listen ! Nightmare situation with the 'brexit' situation. well done David and Darragh.
  8. Don't belive so as we're in lockdown customers are NOT allowed to view cars only BUY remotely, which means they must have paid for goods prior to collection/delivery which puts it in to DSR.
  9. If the customer has seen/inspected the car prior to lockdown then bought it as click and click its not distance selling. #fact
  10. Season’s Greetings! Just like to wish everyone the very best whichever way we’re all going to be spending Christmas. Keep safe, keep healthy and here is to a F A N T A S T I C 2021! Umesh PS: I’ll just put this out, if anyone wants a chat please feel free 07976822700 the phone’s always on! Happy to have a virtual brew or a beer. #InItTogether
  11. Don’t get asked about showing V5 these days, maybe the odd one, once in a blue moon, and it's always in my office infront of me .. One of my customers was selling his car privately a few months ago, someone agreed to buy it then a few hours before collection rang him and asked for the ‘doc ref no’, my customer not sure said he’d call him back and asked me what he should do? I told under no circumstances should he give that out until the guys been and paid in full the sale has gone through, because he wouldn’t give the details the ‘buyer’ never turned up ! He rang me back a few days later to thank me again, it’s just a good job he was on alert to make that call.( I'd explained it was get a new V5 in his name etc etc)
  12. It will all depend on the customer type, like many dealers I've had customers buy unseen purely from video, images, reviews etc, they either paid in full and collected or had the cars delivered ( And pay to have them delivered!). Not all customers are will do this as some NEED to see, touch, and they simply will not buy but we have to think there are many that will buy, after all where ever they go they won't have a choice as this is the ONLY way to buy. Or take a deposit and hold the car until after lockdown ( when ever that may be!) last time I had about 6 customers who did that and waited until they could see/collect.ALL collected and had paid in full prior to collection.
  13. There are many options, for me I'd go with Click Dealer. #HighlyRecommended
  14. "Reggie Perrin" - If you know you know !! most on here will ge Googling that I reckon @trade vet !!
